SARM Module 1 FAQs

What is SARM?

Search and Rescue Mobility™ (SARM) is a total body self-care program to support your desire to be an athlete for life.

It serves as your daily ritual to prevent injury. Injury prevention is the cornerstone to continue your progression of athletic performance over the long term.

Most athletes are rigorous about their training and level of competitiveness. Repeated physical demands often create an accumulation of stress on the body. Over time, compensations and asymmetries develop. They steer the body further away from balance. This dysfunction is inefficient and ineffective. And it prevents you from reaching optimal performance and longevity.

With SARM, athletes will have an individualized program to trust and follow. The design of your program includes a sequence of daily exercises. Together they promote a safe and effective progression.

It’s every athlete’s responsibility to be proactive in taking care of their bodies. So they can stay in the game instead of on the sideline with injury.

SARM is the solution.

Why is it called SEARCH & RESCUE MOBILITY?

Mobility is the most important aspect of your foundation in terms for your athletic performance. So it should be the highest priority daily ritual in any fitness program, including yours.

That’s why it’s the first program that I provide and teach to all my new clients.

I emphasize the value of using your mobility session to search for areas of tension in the body. Then the goal is to rescue yourself from that specific limiting factor to peak performance.

This happens by using a combination of self-myofascial release and stretching. Then you apply specific strength exercises for underperforming muscles. This is what you need to sustain the improvement in your mobility.

The Search & Rescue formula is proven to work. It keeps my personal training clients healthy. Now it’s available to you.

What exactly is The Lower Leg?

The Lower Leg includes the entire area below the knee – this means the muscles and connective tissue of the foot, ankle, up to the knee.

When there is weakness, poor activation, and poor coordination in those muscles, then the entire ankle/foot system doesn’t function properly.

Not only that, it has a negative impact on how well all the musculoskeletal systems above the lower leg function.

That’s why it’s so important to build from the ground up for a stronger foundation.

What results can I expect?

Mentally, you will experience peace of mind by being proactive using the exercises included in SARM. As a result, you will feel the confidence that every athlete must feel to be successful. That means the ability to push your outer limits without being on guard for injury.
